Wolfowitz Admits Weapons of Mass Destruction Not Main Reason for Iraq War

by www.NewsFromTheFront.org
U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary, Paul Wolfowitz, stated that the decision to highlight Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was done largely for "bureaucratic reasons."
CHICAGO (NFTF.org) -- U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary, Paul Wolfowitz, admitted to the U.S. magazine Vanity Affair that weapons of mass destruction were not the main reason for the U.S.-led attack on Iraq.

In fact, according to Wolfowitz, the purpose of emphasizing weapons of mass destruction as a reason to attack Iraq was because it was "the one reason everyone could agree on." Wolfowitz also stated that the decision to highlight Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was done largely for "bureaucratic reasons."

Despite this, U.S. citizens are unconcerned over Wolfowitz's comments and the failure of the U.S. to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. While at one time U.S. citizens considered weapons of mass destruction to be the most important reason for attacking Iraq, now most of the U.S. population is unconcerned whether Iraq actually has such weapons. As stated in the BBC, "All opinion polls show most Americans are unconcerned about the failure so far to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."
